Shooting Ranges

There is $125,000 in grant funds available for shooting ranges across the state with grants requiring a match from the applicant organization. 

The steady increase in the popularity of shooting sports has created capacity issues at some shooting ranges in Minnesota.

In an attempt to address this, the Minnesota Legislature has funded a grants program to provide people with more and better places to safely shoot. For the current round of funding under this program, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is offering $125,000 in grants.
